Chris Douglas

Chris has been the pastor at Bridgeview since 2014.  In addition to his responsibilities at Bridgeview, he serves as a NAMB chaplain in the prison system.  During his tweenty plus years of preaching his goal has always been to share God's truth in love.  Chris received his education from Baptist Bible College, Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary, and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. 

Chris married his college sweetheart, Michelle, in 1997.  God has blessed them with four wonderful Children.  Chris has often said that the greatest thing about him is Jesus and Michelle.  Without either he doesn't know where he'd be! 

His goal is to make the Bible come to life as people encounter the love of Jesus in the Word.  He has led the church to embrace the threefold purpose of:

  • Worship -- in every service and church function Jesus must be proclaimed and worshipped as Lord. 
  • Grow -- the church is to be a place where people can be nurished and mature spiritually.
  • Serve -- God calls the people in His church to serve Him exclusively.
